Rabbi Shuli Passow is a Jewish educator and communal professional currently serving as the Director of Community Engagement at B'nai Jeshurun in New York City. In this role, she brings her background in community organizing to oversee Israel, social justice and hesed programming; builds new opportunities and pipelines for lay leadership; and develops innovative structures to engage and connect synagogue members. In May 2015, Shuli was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary; her journey to and through rabbinical school wove together her experience as a Jewish educator and communal professional, her commitment to building Jewish communities of passion and purpose, and her belief that cultivating a deep spiritual life prepares us to take active part in improving our world. Prior to JTS, Shuli was the Director of Community Initiatives at the Jewish Funds for Justice (now Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice), where she worked with synagogues across the country to support their involvement in congregation-based community organizing. While in rabbinical school, Shuli was the recipient of the Crown Fellowship, and served as a rabbinic fellow at the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU. Shuli holds a BA in French Literature from NYU, studied for two years at the Drisha Institute for Jewish Education, and received a Masters in Public Administration and an MA in Judaic Studies from New York University where she studied as a Wexner Graduate Fellow.
